It’s Official! Aerospike is 10x faster than Cassandra and MongoDB!
In an independent benchmark test of NoSQL databases conducted by Thumbtack Technology, Aerospike wiped out the competition, delivering nearly 10 times the throughput. The flash drive/SSD optimizations of Aerospike delivered an unprecedented speed advantage over other databases!
The Thumbtack benchmark used YCSB to simulate a high-throughput environment, typical of many consumer-facing website applications. As shown in the graph, Aerospike achieved nearly 200,000 transactions per second (TPS) in balanced read-write tests and over 300,000 TPS in read-heavy tests. (That’s the equivalent of less than 1 millisecond per transaction, on average.) Cassandra and MongoDB delivered less than 30,000 TPS under the same loads and Couchbase failed to complete the test.
According to the report:
“Aerospike was the dominant performer, showing durable, replicated behavior 5-10 times faster than what the others could achieve. Even when others were set to asynchronous replication, Aerospike retained this huge advantage.”
